Texas Tech Education Chairman Dr. Richard Brower, in an email Feb. 1, portrayed a Texas Tech-UMC relationship that is less rosy than the one the heads of both institutions have exhibited in public.
Brower's email said that "anesthesia is only one symptom of a badly broken relationship (We) should be prepared to admit a long history of flaws and dysfunction at both Tech and UMC, and to assert that much of this is driven by the historical difficulties with recruitment, retention, and development of advanced medical services and leadership in El Paso." "Improving this situation is what the Tech-UMC relationship should be about," Brower said. "We shouldn't fear the dirt - we should make the best of it. Buried somewhere in the damaged Tech-UMC relationship there remains a unique tremendous potential for dramatically improving healthcare and related educational and economic opportunities in El Paso." Brower expressed skepticism of the hope he held for change. "This tremendous potential is diminished with every unilateral and piecemeal decision through which UMC is distancing itself from Tech We need to get to the roots, emphasize to our political leaders why this really hurts," Brower said.

"Most people will eventually witness an epileptic seizure," said Dr. Richard Brower, a neurologist at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in El Paso who specializes in epilepsy and works with the High Plains Epilepsy Association.One percent of the population is affected by epilepsy, he said.Brower said if a person has a grand mal seizure, characterized by an initial moan or scream followed by collapsing and unconscious jerking, the first course of action should be to lower the person to the ground and cushion the head.Hazardous objects, such as sharp objects or objects that may inflict burns, should be moved out of the way.You should turn the person onto his or her side to allow any secretions from the mouth to drain.Never put anything into someone's mouth, Brower said.Although it is common for people to bite their tongues while having seizures, it is riskier to place something in the mouth, which can pose a choking hazard or can break teeth, Brower said.Don't put your hand in someone's mouth either, or you could get bitten, he said.As for that old myth that doesn't want to die, no one can swallow his or her tongue, Brower said.A person who is known to have seizures should be allowed to have the seizure, Brower said, but check to see that the person's breathing follows a normal pattern after the seizure has ended."There's nothing you can do to modify a seizure," Brower said.Sources: Dr. Richard Brower and Dr. Tony Gonzales
